4th of July Fireworks

by Barry Bauer

This photo was taken circa mid-1930s and shows the St. Johns Fire Dept. assembling the fireworks display for the 4th of July.

The box in the left foreground was addressed to the St. Johns Fire Department, c/o Vic Fink, St. Johns, Michigan. No Zip Code in those days.

It was sent from the Martin’s Fireworks Co., Fort Dodge, Iowa.

Today’s fireworks on the 4th are contracted out to a company that specializes in fireworks displays.

The guys in this photo are unidentified.
